Confidence the Downturn has Passed
A new study from Statistics Sweden indicates that many companies believe the worst of the economic crisis is over.
According to the Flash Indicator for Business Sentiment, the situation is currently worse than usual in many branches, but most see an improvement since the beginning of the year.
Most positive is the service sector, especially large companies in healthcare and education. Confidence is much lower in heavy industry, as well as publishers, the graphics industry, and the construction sector.
